Many of the psycho-educational retreats Texas has to offer aren't held by licensed psychologists, social workers, mental health counselors or marriage and family therapists. And that can be perfectly fine if massage, margaritas and a night of dancing in the moonlight is what you have in mind.
But when trouble arises in your intimate relationship, you need just one licensed mental health, professional invested in improving your marriage by offering you the best help more than 40 years of research can provide.
Call us "old fashioned" but we take objection to hosts who sponsor fun retreats or educationally oriented retreats, extending their offerings and targeting troubled couples in need of real skilled, professional help. There's no law against it. But when it comes to resolving deeper emotional issues don't leave it in the hands of the unlicensed.
Choose someone with not only an advanced degree in mental health, but someone who also has specialized training in couples therapy, sex therapy, marriage counseling, discernment counseling, or other specialized training targeting these issues.
In contrast, we only hire licensed mental health counselors that are dedicated to the work of helping troubled couples. We have over 539 years of collective wisdom in helping the most challenging issues that marriages present. These aren't gimmicks we use, but proven science-based tools perfected to help couples needing help.
We begin with an extensive individual and relationship assessment: The most complete assessment you'll find available today.
